new guidelines to make government surveillance more transparent. former cia and nsa director michael hayden noted today that the president never actually said anything had been done wrong. >> to me, the most telling thing she said was perhaps something he didn't quite say. he didn't suggest he was going to operationally change this program. i mean, there's no suggestion that what he was doing, and what president bush was doing before him with regard to these programs was anything other than lawful, effective and appropriate. >> on "meet the press," republican iowa congressman steve king stood by his comments about immigrants he made last month, saying that his remarks about drug smugglers outnumbering valedictorians were accurate and new legislation granting the shorter path to citizenship would not differentiate between the two groups. >> my heart goes out to the valedictorians brought here by their parents. but we cannot put our sympathies for people in that condition greater than our love for the rule of law, or the sovereignty of the united states of america. >> the conservative
the next shoe to drop is. i'm martha maccallum. the nsa reportedly intercepted calls from americans on american soil. many times they say it was by accident. sometimes an area code was a mix-up between egypt and washington, d.c. but either way, when these mistakes were made, although we've been told that the government tried to be as transparent as possible, nobody was told that those mistakes were made and the information that we got in this report from the "washington post" last night comes from edward snowden, the man who leaked the initial information about the nsa program and now has temporary asylum in russia. bill: funny how that works, huh? senior white house foreign affairs correspondent wendell goler is on vacation with the president at martha's vineyard. actually wendell's working. the president is on vacation. what's the white house saying about this, wendell? >> reporter: the white house appears to have been blindsided by this sorry. officials are referring reporters to the national security agency and to senate intelligence committee chair dianne feinstein who says in

, and jimy williams. we've had a lot of upset over the fact of the nsa collecting data, you know, what kind they're collecting, but it turns out there's another organization collecting information, and it's the nra. >> yes, you know, there's a couple different interesting things about this story. one the fact there's a group to the right of the nra that is attacking the nra. >> and the second thing is i think this points at something that is troubling to people that really care about civil liberties and privacy. people usually don't think about the collection of data for commercial or marketing purposes. this is why the nra was correcting this data. so they could fund raise off these people. it is just as bad or just as much an invasion of privacy. you do different things with it, but you know, i'm sort of glad they're calling attention to this. >> jimmy, how did the nra handle just the naked hypocrisy or apparent hypocrisy of railing about collecting information, when they are doing it? i realize you assume that the national rifle association has morals or any guilt -- i'm telling you that

by nsa surveillance. i think the report in "the washington post" showing that there were more than 2700 incidents in which the nsa broke and violated is going to get more press. democrats are already reacting negatively to it. we've seen patrick leahy on the senate judiciary saying that he's going to hold hearings. even nancy pelosi who has been supportive of the president here says she's quite troubled and regular critics like senator ron wyden have released a letter saying this is the only the tip of the iceberg. there's still a lot we don't know. >> harry, what are you hearing down there? is this something that has already got the far left up in arms or much to do about nothing? >> they voted to defund this program a month ago. i think you're going to have real issues when the congress gets back. there's been a lot of pushback. you can see the people that supported the president, kind of pulling back. this is going to be a big issue. if you you're looking for the obama scandal, as the republicans are, this is going to be a big issue. >> nsa? >> nsa. >> christine, what's your headline

of the so-called black budget which was leaked by the fugitive former n.s.a. computer technician edward snowden. it shows that the budget in its entirety tops $52 billion a year with the biggest share-- more than $14 billion-- going to the c.i.a. our john miller is a former assistant deputy director of national intelligence. john, what did you find in terms of surprises in the budget? >> it was full of tantalizing facts-- some of which i knew because i used to go through this budget. but i think if you're going to pull out the special moments, one, there's the irony which is that the n.s.a. had a budget justification in there to look at 4,000 intelligence officers who they felt might be the insider threat. in other words, a potential security risk who might, i don't know, leak a document like edward snowden. so they certainly seem to have a point there. two, that the n.s.a. and c.i.a. were working on a large program jointly together about offensive cyber attacks against our adversaries since we hear a lot of discussion about cyber attacks against us. and, third, and probably most import
database which is different than they nsa record and that pass them along to agents in the field. while this is perfectly acceptable, probably acceptable, to pass along the tips, what happens next raises questions. the agency has been instructed to create something called parallel construction. that is once they make a case, they act as if they never got the information. they might get a tip that a drug dealer will be in a certain place at a certain time. when an agent will follow a car and, they will make a pre textual traffic stop. they will find drugs inside but the only reason they need to follow the car is from the tip. the agents and the police and the field must recreate their investigative reports. they are supposed to leave out any trace that they got this tip from special operations. the problem with that say some critics is that that means the defendant will not have access to certain information that is part of their constitutional right to a fair trial. host: when it comes up in court, how is it explained by the agents? guest: the agent might be asked how this investigation
